Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

  • When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
    • xwiki.cfg
    • xwiki.properties
    • web.xml
    • hibernate.cfg.xml
  • Add xwiki.store.migration=1 in xwiki.cfg so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.

Issues specific to XWiki 15.10.3

You might see those logs appearing during the upgrade of XWiki:

ERROR o.a.v.t.g.LogTool - Error when trying to evaluate XWiki.SearchSuggestSourceClass: org.apache.velocity.exception.MethodInvocationException: Invocation of method 'evaluate' in class com.xpn.xwiki.api.Object threw exception org.xwiki.evaluation.ObjectEvaluatorException: Could not find an instance of 'ObjectEvaluator' for XObject of class 'XWiki.SearchSuggestSourceClass'. at /resources/uicomponents/search/searchSuggest.js[line 199, column 46]

This is actually expected logs for the upgrade, they shouldn't appear anymore once the flavor is properly upgraded through the distribution wizard.
